Marc Champoux says Sobeys has been a strong supporter of the games annually, but to see them step up to support this event is exciting news.
Champoux says Sobeys has made a $250,000 commitment to the games. The budget for the games is 2.2 million dollars.
Champoux says Sobeys will join the Michelin Foundation as a co-presenting sponsor of these games. The Special Olympics National Games open on July 31st and continue until August 4th.
